know. but some people are. some people are. i want to say as a united states senator that i reject that. this man's actions reflect on him. if we miss some signals about him that we should have known, great. but let's don't take this on a level that we should not. let's let's don't accuse people of give him a pass because he's a muslim. i don't think there's any evidence of that. >> schieffer: all right. senator reed, what's your thought on that? >> well, there are approximately 3,000 americans, men and women of the muslim faith who are serving in the army. they've been wounded. some have been killed in action i've been told. their record is one of service and dedication to the nation and selfless service. i agree entirely with senator graham, this is not about theology. this is about doing your duty as a soldier. also i think that we have to be careful not to leap beyond the current investigation. i think again what we will find is that someone who has deep psychiatric problems, they're not unique to the army, we've had terrible shootings in college campuses and office buildings and th
